Mask by an unknown artist

The Audain Art Museum in Whistler is a great place to see great art, both contemporary and historic, by indigenous artists, especially those of the west coast region.

This mask by an unknown Git'ksan artist is part of a display of masks in a room devoted to an extensive collection of them.

A portrait mask with a rainbow headpiece, it is made of wood, pigment and tin.
